The sins of commission aud

regarding South Eastern Ken

Fourteen days after the Signal
printed an editorial advocating a
government appropriation tor the
construction of a highway from
Cumberland Gap to Crab Orchard
a distance of 98 miles, to be called
Boone Way in honor of the old
hero, Daniel Boone, and requesting
sn editorial expression thereon:
the Courier Journal and Post
came "limpin in the rear" with
loads of cold water" and slush ice
which they promptly threw onto
the proposition in an attempt to
drown out the presu mptious
mountaineer's movement to get
small recognition from our Nation
al government. In their opinion,
evidently, South Eastern Ken
tucky "don't deserve nothin'
nohow." Let these people of the
hills dig out their own salvation
and roads from the mountain sides,
advocate, these arrogant sheets.
These papers endorse, or appear
to, the idea of piling up marble
buildings in Washington at the
cost of millions upon millions of
dollars, harbor work at New York
Norfolk, Galveston, San Francisco
etc. Locking and damming the
Ohio at Louisville, and many
more river points at a cost of
more millions. Many of these
vast edifices, etc., can be viewed
by the ultra rich, along with
Marse Henri, from their private
palace cars and yachts or motor
boats, during all seasons of the
year while our mountaineer is
often, during winter mouths,
obliged to shoulder his "turn of
corn" and climb "trails" over the
billfe to mill for the bread supply
for his family, on account of im
passible roads for riding or
driving, all of which could be so
easilv changed by switching just
a "mite" of the millions so lavishly
bestowed upon other localities.
The work to be accomplished by
this mite would give vast benefits
to not only thousands of people
but would reach up into the

why our people should trade with

proportions in the future that it
would be difficult to close up the

as at present, when those of the
metropolis of our State "hammer"

A MOUNTAIN PLEA.
From Louisville Herald.
The Mt. Vernon Signal invites
The Herald to comment upon a
project earnestly advocated in its
columns and which contemplates
the building of a highway over
Boone's Trail from Cumberland
Gap to Crab Orchard, and then
into the Bluegrass.
The Herald is happy to approve
the proposal. The possibilities of
the idea appeal to us, and are in
entire accord with our policy of
support for any practicable plan of
increasing the number ot good
roads in the State.
Both in the people, and in the
natural resources of the mountain
counties, Kentucky has a n asset
upon which it has never realized
in any adequate measure. Any
thing any of us cau do to promote
the development and welfare of
this great section of the State
The building of a road is, per
haps, the most valuable contri
bution that could be made to
present needs. A hundred inci
dental features of progress depeud
upon roads. The contemplated
highway would have the effect of
drawing to itself, as a main artery,
tributary turnpikes from adjoining
counties, and would thus form a
stimulus to further development.
The Signal propose that
Federal aid should be asked in
constructing the road. Since it
would be interstate in its nature,
touching Tennessee and Virginia
as well as Kentucky, there is
reason and justice in this sug
gestion. We gladly join our
mountain contemporary in urging
the consideration of the project by

Cost the hog raiser millions of dollars last yeae and nothing short of vaccination
seemed to offer the slightest promise oa c ure.
Prevention, however, is the logical solution of the question. Dr. Hess. (M.D., D.V.S.)
has always maintained that by giving Dr. Hess Stock Tonic to tone up and strengthen every
organ in the systetn.'to regulate the bowels, liver and kidneys, expel worms ; and also thoroughly
disinfect the premises, sleepio quarter and runs with Dr. Hess Dip and Disinfectant, would
prevent-an outbreak of this disease.
Read what one of the big hog raisers in the country says :
" During 1911 our country was visited by one of the worst hog plagues ever known.
We fed Dr. Hess Stock Tonic, and only lost two head out of a herd of two hundred and
ten." Alex. Nevius, Modesta, 111.
Also note what bulletin No. !82 of the Kanssas State ollege says
about preventing 1 j 1 oJera
When we recall the conditions which favor the disease and the manner in which its infection
takes place, it will be seen thnt feeding and caring of hog has much to do with the prevention of the
Cholera. Premises shonld he cleaned and disinfected Tegularly. The hogs themselves should be dipped
every few weeks. Maintaining these conditions helps to keep np the vitality of the hog and in this way
troublss of all kinds are warded off. To aid digestion and circulation and to preventworms, the bulletin
reeommeuds a formula of Wood charcoal, Sulphur, Salt, Sodium Bicarhonate, Sodium Sulphate, Sodium
Hyposulphate and Black Antim
This formula, given in tablespoonful doses would undoubtedly be ben'efical but would cost the hog raiser about
10c per pound, Nov compare this with the formula for Dr. Hess Stock Tonic which Is vastly superior and has stood
the test of 20 years.
NUX VOMICA. Digestive and Nerve Tonic. QUASSIA, Digestive & General Tonic. Expels Worms

This preparation is compounded by Dr. Hess, (M.D., D.V.S.) and sold to you on a written
guarantee and only costs 3c per month for the average hog. The definition of the ingredients
